Azure Cloud Use

hi, I need to access a Microsoft Azure SQL server DB from home, and in order to do so I need to get a port opened. Port 1433 specifically.  Is this possible?

Re: Azure Cloud Use

As far as I know that's not one that Virgin Media block.

It's not on the list here https://www.virginmedia.com/help/virgin-media-blocked-internet-ports

Re: Azure Cloud Use

hmm. I checked using a port checker and its blocked. And a google suggested it was blocked by VM by default.

But that page you sent suggests otherwise. Maybe il check the router and see if there is a setting. I can't access the azure server and its the only thing. I can access the same server from my work site no problem

Re: Azure Cloud Use

why do you need to open a incoming port to access azure.

you won't need any ports opening. you must have another problem

Only the server must allow incoming connections on port 1433; not the client.

The port checker results are likely a reflection of the scan having been direct at your public IP Address where no device is configured to accept such network traffic.

In Windows open a PowerShell and enter the following command:

Test-NetConnection <YourServerName>.database.windows.net -Port 1433

Does it report TcpTestSucceeded as false or true?


But that page you sent suggests otherwise. Maybe il check the router and see if there is a setting. I can't access the azure server and its the only thing. I can access the same server from my work site no problem


“its the only thing” ignores the possibility of the server restricting access to specific IP Address, i.e. to your work IP Address (range).

What error message do you see when attempting to connect?
